Characteristics Edit As its name suggests, Pankration is a hybrid martial art, combining techniques from ancient boxing and wrestling, but also using kicks, arm locks, and chokeholds.

Ancient Pankration only banned the use of eye-gouging and biting. Contests had no time limits, and usually were stopped when one Pankratiast submitted, signalling his defeat by raising his index finger.

Because this was seen as the ultimate humiliation, it was not uncommon for fighters to refuse to submit, even at the expense of their lives. History Edit In Ancient Mythology, both Heracles better known as Hercules and Theseus are credited with creating pankration, due to using pankration techniques to defeat supernatural monsters Heracles defeating the Nimean Lion, and Theseus killing the Minotaur. However, it is more likely that it evolved due to a desire to have a new sport which used all fighting techniques, something neither boxing or wrestling alone could do.

It first appeared in the ancient Olympic Games in BC, and quickly became the most popular sport at the Games. In addition to its sporting aspects, pankration was widely used by the Greeks as a form of unarmed combat. Even after Greece was conquered by the Romans, pankration survived, adopted by the Romans as a companion sport to gladiatorial combat.

However, both gladiators and pankration fell victim to the rise of Christianity, as both were seen as savage pagan rituals.

In , the modern Olympic Games were formed. The Cardinal of Lyon voiced his opinions of the ancient martial art to Pierre de Coubertain, the founder of the modern Olympic Games, by saying "We accept all [events to be reinstated], except Pankration.

With the rising popularity of mixed martial arts, there has been talk of entering it in the modern Olympic Games, possibly under the name Pankration.

Pankration: A Deadly Martial Art Form from Ancient Greece

History[ edit ] Boxers the hands are bound fighting under the eyes of a trainer. Side A of an Attic black-figure skyphos , c. In Greek mythology, it was said that the heroes Heracles and Theseus invented pankration as a result of using both wrestling and boxing in their confrontations with opponents. Theseus was said to have utilized his extraordinary pankration skills to defeat the dreaded Minotaur in the Labyrinth. Heracles was said to have subdued the Nemean lion using pankration, and was often depicted in ancient artwork doing that. The mainstream academic view has been that pankration developed in the archaic Greek society of the 7th century BC, whereby, as the need for expression in violent sport increased, pankration filled a niche of "total contest" that neither boxing nor wrestling could. There is evidence that, although knockouts were common, most pankration competitions were decided on the basis of submission giving up.
